Structure and history
The architect Konstantin Jovanović conceived plans for the Parliament of Serbia in 1891. But a contest was open in 1901, gained by the architect Jovan Ilkić, who, in fact, proposed an alternative of the project of Jovanović. The first stone of the building was posed by the king Pierre Ier of Serbia in 1907. Construction was delayed by the First World War; Ilkić died in the concentration camp of Nežider and its plans were lost. After the war, construction began again with new plans of Pavle Ilkić, the son of Jovan Ilkić; it accepted the assistance of the Russian architect Nikolaj Krasnov, in particular for interior installation. Work was completed only in 1936. The building is caracteric academic style Serb of the end of the XIXe century and beginning of the XXe century.
A sculpture of Toma Rosandić, Igrali konji vrani (the black Horses played), was set up in front of the building in 1939.
Before becoming the seat of the Parliament of Serbia, it was that of the Parliaments of Yugoslavia (Royaume of Yugoslavia, democratic Fédération of Yugoslavia, socialist Federal republic of Yugoslavia, Federal republic of Yugoslavia) and of the République of Serbia-Montenegro.
